Last Thanksgiving we didn’t have pumpkin pie. In fact, we didn’t have pumpkin anything!
It wasn’t my fault, I promise. Apparently, other members of my family don’t like pumpkin, so we weren’t allowed to have it with our meal. Instead we had rice krispie treats. No offence to rice krispies, but they just don’t cut it for Thanksgiving. If I knew about the dessert option in advance, I would have brought one or two pies myself. Seriously, skipping pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving is like skipping turkey. Sometimes it sounds like a good idea, but it just feels wrong to do. Thanksgiving just isn’t right when the meal doesn’t end in something named “Pumpkin” or “Pie”
This year, I am bound and determined to change everyone’s minds about the traditional treat. I’ve grabbed cans of pumpkin puree every time I hit the grocery store, and yesterday I started testing mini pumpkin pies and non-pie pumpkin recipes. While, I’m not sure I’ve found the perfect recipe yet, I did see a few pumpkin pie twists that might convert the haters out there.
